Heuser Health member Steven Ton will be running the Derby Festival Marathon in honor of Don Vowels, a friend to many in the Heuser Health family as well as in the community.

Steven is asking that everyone try to donate any amount, no matter how small or large, for every mile he finishes in the marathon.  He will donate the proceeds to Don Vowel’s Life Is Now fund in the Norton Healthcare Foundation, which will provide financial assistance to families and patients in the Norton Cancer Institute.

Please help us make a difference in those lives who are following a similar path- every bit counts!

A bit about Don:

Don Vowels resided in Louisville, Ky. He held a master of arts in theology and a master of science in social work, and was a licensed clinical social worker.

He thrived in an independent counseling practice for more than 25 years. He specialized in cancer and chronic illness, grief and loss, spiritual direction, mood disorders, addictions, relationship issues, and crisis counseling.

 Don had battled cancer for the last five years and sadly passed away on March 25th. As a former Roman Catholic priest and a clinical social worker, he had counseled many others who have a cancer diagnosis. Don created and facilitated a bi-monthly breast cancer support group for 17 years, and had assisted family members and friends who were dealing with cancer.

Don was an avid runner and loved every moment of it. When he was battling cancer that was one of the things in life he missed the most.

Let’s all get together and keep Don’s memory alive in which Heuser Health was such a huge part of his life and at the same time we can help others in need! 

Please turn in all donations to the front desk!
